Today (Sunday), the Israeli Security Cabinet convened for its weekly meeting to discuss the matters at hand, including the latest security threats from Syria and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ).
“There are those who still amuse themselves these days by trying to renew attacks against Israel,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated. “We will take a very firm stance against anyone who tries to attack us or attacks us from any area.”
“I mean any source: rogue factions, organizations-anyone,” Netanyahu added. “In any event, we see Hamas responsible to any attack launched or organized from the Gaza Strip against us.”
As reported earlier by JOL, the PIJ stated that the Israeli warning video released last night shows Israel’s “fear” of the terror group’s response to the demolition of a terror tunnel two weeks ago.
Yesterday, Israel’s Patriot defense system intercepted a Russian-manufactured unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) after it approached Israeli airspace from Syria.
